Property Value

Type: array<System..::..String>[]()[][]
A one-dimensional string array with 13 elements that contains the culture-specific abbreviated names of the months. For 12-month calendars, the 13th element of the array is an empty string. The array for InvariantInfo contains "Jan", "Feb", "Mar", "Apr", "May", "Jun", "Jul", "Aug", "Sep", "Oct", "Nov", "Dec", and "".

If you set this property, the array must be one-dimensional with exactly 13 elements. Calendar objects accommodate calendars with 13 months.

If you set the AbbreviatedMonthNames property, you must also set the AbbreviatedMonthGenitiveNames property. The AbbreviatedMonthNames and AbbreviatedMonthGenitiveNames properties are used to format dates using the following format strings:

  • A standard date and time format string that aliases a custom format string that includes the "MMM" format specifier.

  • A custom date and time format string that includes the "MMM" format specifier.
